Dawn of the Empire - extras contest entry by skipwr3ck Dawn of the Empire - extras contest entry by skipwr3ck
This is a contest entry for the Disney-club's Extras Contest.
For this I chose one of the kings of the past in Atlantis, and the screencap/process can be found here.

I really like how this character came out! I've decided to call him Eridiandarin (Erid) because Atlantians have cool, complicated names, right? Anyway, he's meant to be the very first king of Atlantis, like the one that brought it together and started the empire. Yep. So here are the little extras I added:

- There is a hidden Mickey in there somewhere
- There is pink on his outfit, orange in the sky, and green moss.
- He is elderly
- Movie poster

I hope you guys like it!

Love the gradient of color in the background. I also like that he is looking upward, as if he is hopeful for what is coming next.

Wow, he's really cool! All the little details in his outfit give it such a richness, and the lighting/shading is excellent too. And you hid the hidden Mickey really well (I can't find it, haha! Or at least, I'm not sure if I have or not)

love the whole idea of this, taking the past king and giving him an actual look and with the movie poster, seeing it all like a prequel to the movie
